Australian Organ Donor Register

You must be 16 or older to register your donation decision for after your death.

You can list your decision to donate for transplants, including which organs and tissue you want to donate.

You can’t use the register to donate your organs and tissue for research purposes.

It’s important to tell your family your decision about being an organ and tissue donor. This is because they’ll have the final say.

Your family need to agree to donate your organs and tissue when you die. They may be more likely to follow your wishes if they already know about them.

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood

Lifeblood is funded by Australian governments to provide life-giving blood, plasma, transplantation and biological products for world-leading health outcomes. 

We serve over 25 million people stretched across 7 million square kilometres. We’re united through the power of humanity to build a healthier nation. 

Donate Life

Organ and tissue donation can save and transform the lives of people who, in many cases, are seriously ill or dying.

Everyone over the age of 16 can register to donate their organs and tissues.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, or even if you think you are unhealthy.

Make sure you talk to your family about your decision.
